  • Snow & Related Weather Emergency Policy (as of 2/12/14)
    A snow emergency is enacted by the City and announced by the City on various media, website and social media outlets.

    When the snow emergency is enacted, LPA allows DOWNTOWN RESIDENTS to park their vehicle at no charge (not free for visitors) in one of five LPA Garages; Prince St, Duke St, Water St, East King St and Penn Square Garages (not the Central Newspaper and RRTA Garages which are not LPA Garages) for the duration of the snow emergency to allow for streets to be cleared.

    Residents should NOT enter the garages prior to the snow emergency start time.

    Residents should pull a ticket upon entry at all garages except Water Street (the entrance gate will be lifted since it is pay upon entry).

    When snow emergency is lifted, residents have two hours to remove their vehicles.

    Residents should provide their ticket to the cashier upon exiting ( or by pushing exit button at Water Street)

    Two hours after the City ends the snow emergency, the hourly rate will apply for those parking longer than the two hour grace period.
